Peco celebrated in fine style its 7oth anniversary on Saturday 11th June with the naming of a Colas Rail locomotive Class 56 No.56302 ‘Peco – The Railway Modeller’ at Minehead
Sorry we missed the 30th Anniversary of the establishment of Network South East on the 10th June 1986.

Congratulations to The SNCF Society on reaching its 40th year.
In my opinion the finest European railway society in the UK it exudes knowledge & enthusiasm with a great society magazine.
Well done all.
When we remember the events of 72 years ago & the following last months of the 2nd World War, don’t forget the role of Britains Railways.
It was their efforts & the expertise of thousands of railway men and women that ensured that the Allies armed forces had the right materials to wage the invasion and its aftermath.
In its first major operating session in front of the public, Friedrichstrasse performed well & put on a good show at our local Milland Rural Fair.
Thanks to Ben. Nick, Martin & James for operational excellence & to Mary & Mu who kept us plied with tea, coffee & cake.
Thanks to members of the general public who made kind comments & particularly to the young lad who returned many times to see the layout throughout the day. and was enthralled!
Preparations for the Rural Fair meant the Committee Room was more crowded than usual with Friedrichstrasse erected to fit the curtain & the perspex screening.
A small amount of running was achieved with a Trix TEE unit, but there were problems with the operation of the front & rear headlights.
A potential new member James from Liphook turned up & seemed to enjoy himself.
Volunteered to help us out at the Rural Fair on Sunday.
Simon appeared to show progress on F/Strasse church. Announced he recently celebrated his 80th birthday- congratulations.
Showed samples of wall finish for viaduct- underwhelming response!
Appartment block moved away from church as it dominated the scene- now placed on “island” between tram tracks.
Area around church to be fully fledged churchyard
Congratulations to all those involved in this extraordinary railway project, opened today.
